Nearly 60% of adults are not regularly physically active, and 25% are not active at all. Aerobic capacity often falls by half by the age of 65 creating a need for senior adults to focus on a quality diet and exercise program.
Regular walking and low impact aerobic activities can improve aerobic capacity. Exercise assists in transporting nutrients throughout the body helping you to feel stronger and better.
Senior adults who combine strength training with some aerobic activity often regain lost muscle, burn more calories, increase energy levels, ward off osteoporosis, and may see positive effects with blood pressure, cholesterol levels, joints, and balance.
Although you can’t change your chronological age, you can affect your biological age. In addition to the many cardiovascular and strength benefits of regular exercise and a healthy diet, you can benefit from social and emotional effects that will improve your total well-being.
